Children's Literature - Sarah Knight
"Biscuit Meets the Class Pet" is the newest book in the series of Biscuit Books. It is a perfect book for sharing with beginning readers. In this episode, Biscuit, the inquisitive puppy, meets the class pet. Biscuit is not happy when his little owner, a cute, yet nameless girl, brings a rabbit home from school. The rabbit is the girl's class pet; Biscuit is curious, yet frustrated with this rabbit. The puppy does not want to share its toys; he does not want to share his blanket; and Biscuit does not want the rabbit in his bed. This book opens with inviting pictures of Biscuit, the puppy. It is a book that facilitates reading as well as an interaction with the text, as the child can speak the part of Biscuit—the familiar "Woof Woof" sound of a dog. Additionally, when the rabbit interacts with Biscuit, the rabbit is repetitively shown to "hop." Therefore the young reader can engage with the text through the introductory words and actions of the animals, as both "hop" and "woof woof" are words easily identifiable and understood by young readers. Also throughout the book, the young reader can help to find the rabbit as it goes missing. Each page shows a little part of the rabbit hidden amongst other things. "Biscuit Meets the Class Pet" also addresses issues that many young readers/children encounter. This text utilizes the appeal of a puppy and bunny to demonstrate how difficult sharing can be and how anxiety and nervousness can be present when experiencing something and/ or meeting someone for the first time.
